Beautiful You is Flying High

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing with you a card I found on Pinterest and I CASE’d it.  I can’t find it to show you, if you have seen it and know where I got this idea I would love if you would let me know.

Here is my card:

I masked the Lady after stamping her, then sponged the sky and stamped the trees.  I then colored her, this makes it look like she is in front of the trees.  The balloons were punched out with the balloon punch using Vellum which I then sponged with the color I wanted.  I put the white line in the balloon with the Chalk Marker, I placed a glue dot behind this chalk line to attach.  You can’t see it!  Of course I put another glue dot behind the black line for the ‘string’.  It’s a challenge to find spots to put your adhesive with Vellum because you don’t want it to be seen.

This was a really fun card, and my class loved it!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Ghosting with a Twist Technique Tuesday

If you like this card, look below and see how you can have me make you one!  Go to this video to see how this card was made!

I see the ‘Ghosting’ Technique all over, and I wanted to do this with a Twist!  I made a Beach landscape card, and wanted my chair to have a shadow, or ghosting effect, BUT I wanted to be able to see the water and sand behind the chair.  The thinlit from SU!’s Seasonal Layers cuts the entire chair out, and that would leave a BIG hole in my beach scene!  :-O  Can’t have that!!  So, I die cut out 2 images of the chair, one in Crushed Curry and one in Black.  Plus, I had to die cut out the chair directly from my scene!

Once the card was made, I cut out the chair which left a BIG hole in my card, so I had to remake my background on scraps of Very Vanilla to match the colors that I already had on my card.  This is much easier than you would think…….just sponge the colors you used onto Very Vanilla and stamp the waves for the water, tape them onto the back of your card.  It’s that easy!!  Then you will still have the outline to place a black chair, and it will be flat to the card, it looks just like a shadow!

Here is the view of the entire front!

Isn’t this pretty!!?  If you want to see this card from start to finish, just visit my YouTube Page to see this awesome Ghosting with a Twist Technique!
